Now here's a story of how Chicagoland Flooring saved the day!
I'm currently renting an apartment, and in the process of buying it directly from the landlord. We were less than 24 hours from closing on the sale and signing all the paperwork when all of a sudden, with just hours to go, my fiance walked into the kitchen to find the wooden floors throughout our kitchen had buckled for no apparent reason!
So we called Chicagoland Flooring for an immediate inspection. They were there in less than 2 hours, immediately found and stopped the leak from the fridge, and gave us a number of options of how we might fix the floors.
The service from Chicagoland Flooring was absolutely fantastic. We had just enough time to call our lawyer and postpone the sale. If we hadn't found the buckling or had it inspected by a qualified inspector and had gone ahead and bought the place, it could have cost us thousands of dollars in repairs.
I can't recommend them enough for hardwood inspections. It's been an absolute pleasure to work with the team at Chicagoland Flooring.

Chicagoland Flooring is AMAZING!!!!
We live in a 100 year old building in Lincoln Park and have very old hardwood floors that are very squeaky in certain spots. We talked with at least half a dozen companies who all said there is nothing that can be done besides redoing the subfloors and hardwood - and a $20k+ investment. I spoke with Chicagoland Flooring who wanted to try a few different approaches from above before going that route. They asked me to send pictures and a video so they were better able to diagnose and give me a realistic idea of work and an estimate. They were incredibly responsive over email and were able to come in and do the work the next week (my schedule conflicts not theirs). He was able to identify the squeaky areas and alleviate 99.9% of the noise. The repair job was absolutely wonderful and these guys were a pleasure to work with. Chicagoland Flooring is the real deal, a respectable and honest company and I HIGHLY recommend for any and all flooring needs.

Chicagoland Flooring awarded for superior service

Thank you for putting the final touch to my home. I am now ready for the holidays. Chicagoland was very professional. The manager took time to review all the different options before I decided to ininstall new white oak in my house. They were on time and very clean. My new floors look so nice. It was wroth all the time and effort. Thank you Chicagoland Flooring. :)

The project involved reviving very old, nasty looking maple wood floors that we discovered after removal of many junk layers. We were not sure if we could save them as they looked really beaten up, covered with stuff. We got honest evaluation from Darek with Chicagoland Flooring about our options and expectations. In the end we decided to salvage, our vintage, irreplaceable floors.
After some magic from skilful craftsmen, working three days our original, old growth maple started showing its beauty and color. Our maple floors have a lot of character but we love them this way. We are so happy with the end result. We are thankful for great advice and great work.

Chicagoland Flooring was the only company we spoke with who understand our needs and provided us refinishing options. We have some warn spots on our floor that aren't bad but we wanted fixed. We assumed it would be a BIG re-sanding project and it was according to all of the other contractors we contacted. But Chicagoland suggested an alternative. It is half the cost, looks great and is high quality workmanship! Thank you!

I am so happy with this small job done on my older home original? hardwood floors. They were able to repair some defective pieces without sanding of the entire flooring. These repaired pieces look really close, just a little bit different, but they warned me before. I liked their honesty, and fast follow up.

Our painter messed up our hardwood floors. We should not let him do it. We called Chicagoland Flooring as they were NWFA certified contractors. Eric was out promptly to review our situation. Unfortunately, full refinishing was required. So Chicagoland team was sanding the next day and we were able to move in as scheduled. Thank you.

Customer Feedback: Very responsive, certified floor professional with reasonable prices. Our old, vintage hardwood floors look so much better after sanding and refinishing than I could have even imagined. Some floorboards were replaced and you can barely see the difference.

Customer Feedback: I looked around for competent flooring contractor for repair of a few broken boards in our old condo. Most would not come to small job or they wanted to replace whole room. After emailing Chicagoland Flooring pictures of our bad sections they provided us with quick estimate range. Within two days they were able to come over and replace bad boards. Repair looks really close only slightly different (they warned us about it) and they even came back one more time for extra coat to make it look better.

Customer Feedback: They sanded and refinished 3 bedrooms, upstairs hallway and flight of stairs. Also had 2 rooms floors buffed.
We had an extremely tight schedule b/c we purchased a home and had 1 week to get this project completed before we moved in and the manager was very accommodating. They followed up several weeks after the job to make sure we were happy with the floors and it could not have been a better experience. This company has it right...very skilled employees and also very good at customer service.

Customer Feedback: The owner of Chicagoland Flooring came on time on a very snowy day in Chicago to give me a quote on refinishing about 650 square feet of wood flooring. He was very knowledgeable and patient with me, he explained the process in detail. He even took an interest in other problem areas of my new home that were worrying me. He followed up well. I am happy I used their service even though I had a quote was lower. Overall, I do recommend this company. They take pride in their knowledge of wood and wood refinishing.

COMMENTS: Chicagoland Flooring was fantastic! The owner spent a lot of time explaining what he could and could not do and made sure he had a full understanding of the job. In fact, my painter who was also there commented on his professionalism and knowledge. He actually did some extras, which was a pleasant surprise.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Removal of old flooring and installation of new hardwood floor in large family room. Buffing and refinishing of floors in kitchen, living room, and hallway. It was a difficult job requiring removal of several lawyers of old flooring, rebuilding of subfloor, removal and reinstallation of baseboards, matching existing floors, leveling new floor to meet uneven levels of old flooring, and building new thresholds. They also hauled away large amounts of debris, moved my furniture into and out of the rooms.

The job took a little over a week, and cost more than original estimate due to unexpected condition of subfloor. Everyone showed up on time, and cleaned up when they were done. They were very responsive to all my inquiries and requests.

COMMENTS: Overall it went well and we are very pleased with the results. The work took two days longer than expected, because of the linoleum removal and the new installation.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Removed old carpet, installed solid wood flooring in three bedrooms and hallway.
COMMENTS: Chicagoland Flooring was not the cheapest nor the most expensive ($1500 less than my most expensive bid. Just the BEST. They are a small outfit and provide the BEST customer service and have outstanding knowledge. We have a 3 year old row house and was concerned about the quality of the installation and matching existing wood floors. Honest and trustful. They were on time, completed in three days, were very neat and I ALWAYS got an update phone call everyday on the works progress. Great work! Outstanding service and installation. I was told that there would be nicks to our walls and a lot of dust because of some tight quarters. They were VERY careful and very clean. We had NO damage from them and they had to move the wood floors up three flights of narrow freshly painted stairs.

COMMENTS: The experience was great. Chicagoland Flooring had more information about the different finishes what they would look like.

Date: 8/31/2004
Zip code: 60091, Wilmette, IL
DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Three rooms were stripped and refinished. The floors especially in one room where water damaged and had many screws which had apparently been put in to relieve squeaking. The owner returned my call quickly after my original inquiry and he followed up with a personal visit for an estimate; the work was scheduled for the next week. Workers came when expected, and the owner stopped by to check on the progress and to show me the results of several stains on the stripped wood. I chose wax rather than a varnished finish and the shine did not appear even in the reflected light. His worker came back the following Monday and worked for hours. The owner himself joined them later and worked for hours until it seemed perfect. He is a delightful young man, a pleasure to know and work with.
COMMENTS: Chicagoland flooring did a great job on my floors. The owner is a very personable young man who is easy to work with and follows through on what he says. The floors are beautiful and the workers were friendly, polite and very respectful. It was a great experience. The fee was reasonable, cleanup was through, and there were no surprises. I definitely would use them again and recommend them wholeheartedly.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Installed hardwood floors throughout the second floor of my 1898 Victorian farmhouse. (3 bedrooms plus a hallway)
COMMENTS: These guys were great. They were unbelievably responsive. Chicagoland Flooring is just a rally great to work with. We encountered some problems with the foundation flooring being really warped and slanted in one of the rooms (which we didn't notice until we started putting down the new floor.) The owner came to me saying that he really thought it looked bad to have such slanted floors and that I wouldn't be happy in the end and had a number of options to fix it (which he did and it looks fantastic). I really trust these guys, they give 110% and really go out of their way to do a fantastic job. They are craftsmen and aren't happy with a job unless they think it's perfect.
